Bandit Gang’s Worst 5 Cards of The Way Of The Witcher Expansion

This article has been written by Babyjosus in collaboration with Bomblin.

After Bandit Gang’s Top 5 cards of The Way of The Witcher Expansion, we of course had to do a 5 Worst Cards of The Way Of The Witcher Expansion. So here we are. All members had the chance to put in their votes based on card art and/or ability.  In the end 17 members voted, including 11 from Content Team and 6 from the Competitive Team (Pro Team & Academy Team). We ended up with the following 5 cards, from least voted card to the most voted card.

*Hnnnh…* hm, wha? Sorry, nodded off.

#5 Fallen Rayla

This cool-looking chick of a card has unfortunately gotten the #5 spot in the 5 worst cards. Its too conditional and only playable with Salamander which is a meme combo card.

Most of the votes came from the Competitive Team, hence the grey color.

#4 Viy

After playing with Viy and having to face the card quite a bunch on ladder. The members have decided its one of the worst cards in the game. Not worst as in its a bad card, but worst because its not healthy for the game. The ability is pretty binary and ”dumb”. Some of the members didn’t even want to say Viy out loud since they are still experiencing PTSD.

Most of the votes came from the Competitve Team, although it was a close call because the Content Team also massively voted on this card. Hence the grey color.

#3 Cosimo Malaspina

If it was for SpecimenGwent it wouldn’t be included in the 5 worst cards at all, but that guy is no Bandit Gang so there was no way he could bring out his vote. The average value is not high, this has been tested by Bomblin. You can see the work in progress data here.

Most of the votes came from the Content Team, hence the pink color. If the Content Team of Bandit Gang can’t even make this card work than maybe CDPR should rework or buff the card…

#2 Maxii Van Dekkar

This card has no synergy with whatsoever that exists in the current card-pool. Which means that the card is just a 6 for 6. Absolute garbage.

Four from the Content Team and three from the Competitive Team. Which means almost the whole Competitive Team has voted this card to be trash. Hence why we decided to give it the grey color.

#1 Arch Griffin

While it was included in the top 5 cards, it turns out that everyone except Babyjosus* has changed their opinion about the card. The reasoning for this is that its a meme card that can easily be answered by tall removal and/or heatwave. People say that because of this weakness its a worse version of Viy, who has been dominating the meta.

*Babyjosus’s Arch Griffin Deck for the few cool people out there. If a Deck Guide is wanted, Babyjosus will provide. Let him know in the comment section down below the article.

Six out of the eight votes came from the Content Team which means that two of them were the Competitive Team. Hence why we decided to give it the pink color. Babyjosus wants to let the six people of the Content Team know that he is very disappointed in them. They will soon re-evaluate their position on the Content Team.

This is team Bandit Gang’s worst 5 cards of the WOTW expansion. We hope you have enjoyed our top 5 and worst 5 cards of WOTW. Do you agree or disagree with us? Let us know your worst 5 cards! We are looking forward to do these type of articles again whenever an expansion releases.

Bandit Gang’s Top 5 Cards of The Way Of The Witcher Expansion

This article has been written by Babyjosus in collaboration with Bomblin.

After the latest expansion the Way Of The Witcher (WOTW) got announced, we know that you all were eager to find out what we think about it. And so, we have decided to make a top 5 cards of the WOTW expansion. All members had the chance to put in their votes based on card art and/or ability. In the end 13 members voted, including 9 from Content Team and 4 from the Competitive Team (Pro Team & Academy Team). We ended up with the following 5 cards, from least voted card to the most voted card.

So pay attention now, you might learn something!

#5 Ivar Evil-Eye

He looks cool, contains a lot of tempo, is a good control card and will carry Nilfgaard on its own. If you really want to, you can put this card in any Nilfgaard deck!

Most of the votes came from the Competitive Team, hence the grey color.

#4 Snowdrop

Snowdrop can be lots of value in Nilfgaard when you pair it with cards like Doadrick, Isbel and the leader ability Tactical Decision. If you are not a big fan of the faction, you can also play it in Skellige with the Discard archetype.

All the votes came from the Content Team, hence the pink color.

#3 Salamander

This card has crazy potential when you combine with Syanna and Madame Luiza. Molegion confirmed it in Crozyr’s chat that you can play the card twice in one turn. If you want to play it in a more of a meta version, then you could kill it with self poison and play it again with Renew. Or if you don’t benefit from self poison then you could even kill it with Offering. Or if that’s too memey for you, then you could destroy it with Mutants Maker.

All the votes came from the Content Team, hence the pink color.

#2 Arch Griffin

Arch Griffin has huge meme potential, but at the same time might work in hybrid off-meta decks with Pincer Maneuver. Which finally makes that leader ability somewhat playable again. You most likely want to play it in round 1 or round 2.

Most of the votes came from the Content Team, hence the pink color.

#1 Viy

Almost all the people that voted picked Viy as their number 1 card of the expansion. Perhaps, because the card feels very beta Gwent. The members are looking forward to make it as tall as possible, most likely you would have to build the deck around the card.  Of course if you do that, Heatwave is your worst enemy. But then again, Caranthir is your best friend.

Most of the votes came from the Content Team but its worth mentioning that three out of four people from the Competitive Team voted on Viy. Hence why we decided to give it the grey color.

This is team Bandit Gang’s top 5 cards of the WOTW expansion. We hope everyone will have tons of fun today! Let us know what your top 5 cards are in the comment section below.
